It's family time again...

our annual family cookout was held Saturday Sept 12. I'm glad to spend time with family I don't see often. My kids all came so we took the opportunity to do a family picture! This is a first!!

There were thrilling rides at the park. I didn't make it up that far this year.. guess I was too busy gossipin'.. as if I'd gossip! You know I'd rather walk on my lips than say ANYTHING bad about ANYBODY! I don't think Zeke rode any of the rides but the girls did. Such fun for them all!

Good food and plenty of it was there! I don't know about everyone else in the family but I look forward to this every year. It's a memory to keep forever. I only hope others feel the same way. Family is family, good or bad... you need to enjoy them while you can.. one day they will be gone and there is no going back.

School Dayz........

Maddie has started pre-school. So far, so good. It's amazing the attitude these people have. So encouraging, which is great! Last year's experience left a lot to be desired! Never in my wildest dreams did I think a program would allow a teacher to constantly tell the kids they were bad.. day in.. day out.. by October I had had it and so had Cindy, Rik and Sandy.. although Sandy did give them a chance for redemption by going to speak with the director it didn't do any good.. so, out Maddie came. Best decision ever made. I can already tell just by picking Maddie up on the first day these folks have a great program. They allow parent participation too which is good. I hope Maddie will make new friends and continue to enjoy going.
